Answer:

(121.576 ; 273.424)

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the data:

175, 125, 180, 220, 240, 245

We can calculate the mean and standard deviation

Mean = Σx/ n = 1185 / 6 = 197.5

Standard deviation = 46.125 (calculator)

The confidence interval :

Mean ± margin of error

Margin of Error = Tcritical * s/sqrt(n)

Tcritical at 99%, df = n – 1 ; 6 – 1 = 5

Tcritical = 4.032

Margin of Error = 4.032 * 46.125/√6

Margin of error = 75.924

Confidence interval :

197.5 ± 75.924

Lower boundary = 197.5 – 75.924 = 121.576

Upper boundary = 197.5 + 75.924 = 273.424

(121.576 ; 273.424)
